Juna's art and heart
might just change the world.

The world is but a canvas to the imagination.
– Henry David Thoreau

Juna is a 5-year old artist who lives on Maui and began painting at the age of one. His parents sensed that they had given birth to an old soul from the moment he arrived.

Juna’s natural gifts as an artist and lover of many things manifested from a very early age. For his first birthday, he received two gifts that would prove to be a looking glass into his future: an easel with paints and a ukulele. His love for both was palpable. Every morning, Juna would wake up and strum the strings with a unique familiarity and sing to his parents. Almost immediately, he displayed a deep recognition with music. Rather than watching cartoons or playing with the usual childhood toys, he would ask to watch acoustic videos of his favorite musical artists—Jack Johnson, Michael Franti and Trevor Hall. He was drawn to poetic artists who sang from their hearts and his passion for music was immense. The same was true for painting.
